Reliable Basement Services Egress window Installation Steps

Egress Window Installation Steps:

1. We call Julie before we dig to locate any underground utilities.

2. We lay down 6 mil plastic next to the work area to protect your yard and landscape.

3. Hand dig the exterior area where the egress window will be installed, placing the excess dirt on the protective plastic. (No heavy machinery brought on site).

4. The concrete wall will be cut from the exterior using a concrete saw with water hookup, ensuring minimal dust and minimal mess on the interior of the home. All excess concrete and dirt will be taken away and disposed of. (The Egress Window is now ready to be installed).

5. Ensure proper support if necessary (if this is a support wall, or if home has a brick facing).

6. Install window. Level and plum with treat wood, wooden shims.

7. Ensure proper drainage, every home is different some homes have exterior drain tiles, some do not. (either way we will present a proper drainage solution for your dome).

8. Install the window well by attaching to the foundation wall, add escpae ladder to the window well. Fill around the drain tile and window well both sides approximately 3" to 5" of 3/4" washed gravel so water will drain. Backfill with the existing dirt.
